6:05 pm
this healthcare message out. maybe libby schaaf answered the question but why do you think he went local instead? he reached out to us. >> reporter: well, he said it very clearly. been there, done that, been on cnn. done the town hall meeting, he has done the national campaign. he wanted to focus on 20 local cities and in particular the 7 of us that came from local tv stations and again as you said, when you talked to toomey here in washington, we are the only bay area station invited. he that's that the gravitas of local news that someone like us here talking about this tonight is really going to hit home in the communities. he did what he could. now he wants to us do it. >> allen martin live at the white house, allen, thank you very much. do you or anyone you know play fantasy football? there has been talk of making that illegal here in california. new at 6:00 kpix 5's mike sugerman says for fantasy players, tonight there is some
